Regional Workshop on CAPAR and Asset Recovery in Africa – Nairobi, Kenya

On the 25th and 26th April 2024, regional bodies, parliamentary networks, asset recovery interagency networks, and civil society representatives will gather in Nairobi, Kenya for the Regional workshop on the Common Africa Position on Asset Recovery (CAPAR) and Asset Recovery in Africa.

The event is organised by the CAPAR Civil Society Network, Civil Forum for Asset Recovery (CiFAR) and Transparency International, aims to foster collaborative engagement around CAPAR and asset recovery in Africa and aims to;

  • Provide a platform for CSOs and policymakers to engage in dialogue around asset recovery issues and CAPAR
  • Discuss challenges, best practices and lessons learnt in asset recovery and CAPAR implementation
  • Discuss the outcomes of the CAPAR pilot assessments – a new civil society tool being developed to assess CAPAR implementation

CAPAR serves as a continental policy and advocacy tool to strengthen the fight against illicit financial flows. It promotes a unified approach among member states to recover stolen assets, bolster legal frameworks, facilitate cooperation between countries, and ensure transparency and accountability in asset recovery processes.

25 participants are expected to attend, including representatives of organisations based in Cote d’Ivoire, Kenya, Madagascar, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.
